The St Paul’s Way: Serve Here

This week we’re taking a look at one of the Monthly parts of our St Paul’s Way: Serve Here.

The Bible is full of verses which tell us to serve the Lord and to serve others. One of my favourite of these verses is from  1 Peter 4:10:
ach of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

I love the fact that God has made each of us unique with unique gifts. That means that only Linda can lead in the way she leads, only Gary can sing the way he sings, only Barbara can make a cup of tea the way she does, only Eileen can make butties the way she does, only Jeff can greet people the way he does… God wants us to use whatever we’ve got to serve - no matter how small it may seem! If Jesus can take 5 loves and 2 fish and feed over 5000 people – he can use “little old me” to serve his church.


There is so much going on in the life of St Paul’s that you can get involved with not just within Sunday Services (welcoming people, making tea and coffee, helping make sandwiches) but also through the week at groups such as Long Loaf on a Wednesday afternoon who are always extremely grateful of an extra pair of hands to chop some carrots or wash a pan or two.


So, why not get involved? This is one of our monthly ways but you can always serve more often if you like! Speak to Greg, myself or any of the balloon leaders for more information about how you can start serving here today!
